Agora International School Madrid is an international private school, for children aged 0 to 18, which belongs to the prestigious educational group, NACE Schools. It aims to prepare pupils to live and work in the ever-changing, competitive, globalised world, and to do so, Agora must be at the forefront of educational development and commit to offering pupils a truly international education.
NACE Schools is an international group with schools in 4 countries: Spain, France, the UK and India. Though their geographical locations differ, all NACE international private schools uphold the same core values which shape the educational project. These values play a key role at NACE Schools. All pupils at the international private schools receive their education in a diverse environment which promotes respect, tolerance, social commitment and the sense of belonging to a great community.
Agora International School Madrid is authorised to teach the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB), which enables pupils to access a leading programme of studies and qualification in the field of international education, as well as the most prestigious universities worldwide.
|Teaching approach of the school||
Agora's educational project is built around three core ideas: Educational Excellence, Global Readiness and Co-curricular Depth and Excellence.
Educational Excellence forms the basis of the school's educational project, and is what it considers to be the first pillar of its methodology as an institution. At all NACE schools, pupils are given the academic knowledge, the skills, and the understanding necessary to reach their maximum potential.
The second pillar of the educational project at NACE international private schools is Global Readiness. Agora offers a wide variety of foreign languages with immersion programmes to enrich the pupils’ learning experiences. The majority of classes are taught in English, and the school also offers Chinese, French and German, always with qualified native or bilingual teachers.
The third pillar of the educational project is Co-curricular Depth and Excellence. As well as the school’s own music project, in which all pupils learn to play an instrument (the violin), Agora works in collaboration with the Fabordón Music School, which from this academic year onwards is now authorised as a Conservatoire. Students who wish to can progress more professionally with their studies in this area. The school also places great importance on sport and the creative arts, which offers pupils many benefits in their academic and personal development.
